“I simultaneously fear and look forward to graduation. I fear the drastic changes: having to find a job, living away from friends, experiencing the “real world.” But I still look forward to it because I believe I am ready.”
Let’s all RECord our hopes, dreams, wishes, fears, anxieties, or anything else about your future you wish to share! It may also be fun to capture someone else’s thoughts on the subject.
During the last few months of college, I began feeling overwhelmed with emotions about the insecurities, unknowns, and drastic changes associated with my graduation. I consider myself a relatively laid-back person, and therefore was totally taken aback by these intense emotions. So for my final portfolio in photography, I wanted to explore these emotions through a collaboration project with my fellow graduating seniors. I had them write their thoughts about their future directly on a photo I printed of them. It ended up being a great opportunity to share thoughts and stories with my friends, something I wouldn't ordinarily do with so many people.
Although some of the scans are a bit hard to read, I wanted to share what they had to say, with the hopes of inspiring you to express your feelings about your future in your own art form. I’m excited to see what direction this project takes!
